French Ministry of Agriculture Switches to Mozilla Mail

Thursday September 11th, 2003

Hervé, Bruno and Pierre from the French MozillaZine write: "The MozillaZine-FR staff are pleased to announce that the French Ministry of Agriculture has chosen Mozilla Mail for replacing Netscape Messenger 4.7. Outlook and Netscape 7 have been considered, but Mozilla has been preferred for its immunity to viruses and its licensing model. Tests have been run this Summer and Mozilla will be deployed in Q3 on every machine at the Ministry offices." MozillaZine-FR has a French article about the switch.

Using Mozilla software (Firebird, same deal) for both mail and browsing is obviously possible, some people do it. I'm just saying that many people use a Mozilla browser (Mozilla / Firebird) for browsing but still use a different email client (one of Microsoft's or something else). Mozilla mail (app suite/thunderbird) is less popular than Mozilla browsers (app suite/firebird), at least that's how it appears to me.
